The weather was awful this morning, but as the 19 year olds don’t move very early or fast it did not matter really. By the time they had been fed and watered twice the sun had come out and it was a glorious afternoon.
We headed out to the most haunted castle in England, Berry Pomeroy Castle. This castle is in the middle of nowhere, we almost drove past it as is not well signposted either. Two families had owned the castle, both had left due to money problems (nothing new) and when the last family left the locals ransacked it for the Beer Quarry stone, hence it is now a ruin.
With the help of the audio guide, we got an idea of what went on there and what a magnificent building it was in its time. They were self-sufficient with own fish ponds, water-mill, well and cold water running in to the beer cellar, cold beer was obviously very important. Of course we also heard about the ghosts, fortunately too sunny for them to make an appearance.
If you are ever passing, pop in.
Very pleased to have my own runner beans for dinner, yum.
